On this one, my old friend,we may disagree - but then, you know, my politics have not changed and are as central to me as ever. In fact, there is more need now for us to be speaking up than there was in the 60's. The Empire has gotten a lot more dangerous and deadly. This powerful, poetic way of speaking out is one of your unique gifts. Just reading these words took me back to 1968 when we sang these words at a huge Be In in Central Park and - we sang them beautifully and with revolutionary zeal. The Heart is your favorite domain - We all know that - but is ii our only purpose? Our Lady Mary herself said in her Magnificat:
"...He has scattered the proud in their conceit
He has cast down the mighty from their thrones
and has lifted up the lowly
He has filled the hungry with good things
and the rich he has sent away empty..!
Mary You Are My Friend - and my Mother, and my Comrade.
Forgive my rant, Bruce. You sing abut what your heart and your soul tell you to!
